    ...What happened with Adalhard blocking out Bast? I'm not sure I get that.

    Ok, basically, Adalhard asked Carric to keep Bast out, but due to just...time shinaningans, he closed the door before Carric could do this. As a result, he and Carric are now inside the inn, door closed, and everyone else is outside it.

    Fortress mode or adventure mode? Because the former just means that you're still on your first year and so far has failed to cause any major mining accidents, while the latter is a bit more telling.

    Also, I assume you've checked out the wiki, yes? It's great, even for an experienced player like me.

    Fortress mode. The problem is that I can't even get mining to work. I'm completely inept at this and wish the controls had SOME degree of sensemake to them.

    Yeah, the first few games was a lot of trial and error to me. I mostly used the help section, but I remember there being a few tutorials on the wiki.

    Oh, and I remember having problems with figuring out how to do mining as well when I first began playing. It's found under the "Designations" menu, and the key commands are d + d (or just d when the X cursor is underground, as it then defaults to mining). Woodcutting, plant-gathering and stair-carving is found under "Designations" as well.

    ...
    You know, this is actually one of those situations when even I reckon that chat would be handy. Learning someone play DF is almost as tricky as doing tech support.

    Wait, so is this Adalhard's creation? Did he tell it to kill the people?

    Also, still unclear, how did this plant show up in the first place?

    I'm sure Adalhard will explain it after the fight, but here's a basic gist of it thing.

    The medicene Bast is taking? It's made from these plants. Elden, with Adalhard's assistence, created them on Adalhard's requested. Unfortunately, neither one of them had their information COMPLETELY correct, so there were no wards on the plant protecting it from the taint of the Shadowfell. Because Adalhard made a bloody mess in his room carving up his back, that blood soaked into the floor, where he planted the flowers. The taint makes plants crave blood and meat, so they drank of his blood, growing stronger, roots extending out of the room into other nearby houses, strangling house animals and stuff and sucking up their blood.

    Eventually, they got strong enough that they could eat full on meat based creatures, growing bigger and stronger, untill monster plant happens! We've gotta kill it now.

    Like I said, Adalhard will likely explain this (and more, like what he was talking to the plant about when he trapped himself and Carric in their) after the fight.

    By this point she knows the flower is Adalhard's and Elden's fault, he feels really bad about it, and she has to point her swords at it untill it dies.

    That depends. How much has she been listening to Elden and Adalhard bickering about whom to blame (they both try to pin it on themselves)?

    You're more correct then you know. I forgot to mention it, and no reason to really spoil it, buut. You recall seeing a pseudodragon on the Asterion slave ring "product sheet", as it were.

    You shouldn't duel your equipment to death. No matter what the outcome is, you'll be incapable of recording your music, and that's a bad thing, since your music is good (if a bit disharmonious at times, in my opinion).

    It's a product of passing the cable order threshold and having overpar wiring and equipment for recording but the worst possible actual recorder ever... my craptastic laptop which refuses to stay on even when directly connected to a power source due to problems on the contact between the charger and the laptop itself; and sometimes feels like an overenthusiastic ADHD filled boy trying to noise suppress noise not meant to be suppressed or removing acoustic echo meant to be there.

    Add on top that I sometimes end up surround by instruments without noticing, specially in the case of heavily synthesised stuff or when using heavy instrumentation simultaneously and I have to fight to get out or record, that and I can't control people not entering, because locking the door usually results in door banging.

    This time it was probably the worst I'll get to, because the guitar requires more space for playing than synthesizers do, so I needed neck space on top of the small semi-circle of synths+clavinova I usually form... of which half work as controllers rather than instruments. Not to mention the control tower being away from me (at this point I realised I should be considering getting myself a mixing console and just record in my room instead of at the music room and just play everything at a synth.)

    I probably could also record each part one at a time but that'd be wasting time since for some cases I don't need my two hands for the piano or for the strings and I'd have to re-arrange the room repeatedly for each instrument while on a single massive set-up I get it done in a smaller fraction of time. On the other hand... cabling would be A LOT easier.

    Thanks. There is a guitar only track of it, but it sounds wrong mainly because I wanted someone to sing along but know no singer with Bossa Nova ability in my vicinity, that and because I suck at playing the guitar.

    The word "bossa" is slang for doing something with particular charm, natural flair or innate ability in Brazil.

    It's also alluding to Bossa Nova, a musical genre which is kind of like Samba but without percussion. Explaining it is kind of hard without using the misnomer of Jazz meets Samba since Bossa actually became a something of a Jazz standard since Jazz musicians took a liking to it, but was born from one guy who is still alive called Joao Gilberto (and well, Jobim and de Moraes) who parted from Samba but wanted something else (and was thrown to a madhouse for two months for composing something so unheard of by his father no less). Sometimes its called elevator music but it has a lot more going for it. True Bossa is normally a guitar alone, a piano accompanying at most, sometimes replaced for a xylophone; some composers throw in strings to approximate it to a more northern standard.

    The most famous piece of Bossa is the first Bossa song ever which is Chega de Saudade, here sung by Gilberto. The most popular one is of course Garota de Ipanoema here played by both de Moraes and Jobim.

    On one hand, my fingers are itching to let Elden step in and make sense out of the situation. On the other hand, it's nice to see the others interact with eachother without Elden's constant meddling to preserve the status quo...

    Still reading the Elven spoilers, however.

    Okay, in order to properly role=play IC, can I at least OOC know what the heck's going on? Or did this happen in spoiler boxes or something? I'm really, really confused.

    What happened, happened in the spoiler boxes when Carric and Adalhard where in the inn alone. I am not at liberty to tell you, sorry. You'll just have to ask in character (as you did).
